Ready to build a habit? Here’s how to find a behaviour that will actually stick.


Let’s dive a little deeper…

When behaviours have an immediate positive impact, they’re more reinforcing, meaning we’re more likely to want to do them again. And the more we repeat a behaviour at the same time using the same cue, the more likely it’ll become a habit. (All good things.)

Need help figuring out which healthy habit to try building? Feel free to grab one of our suggestions!

Eat better

  • Track my meals when I sit down to eat.
  • Include a veggie with every meal.
  • Meal-prep my lunch while cleaning up from breakfast.

Move more

  • Stand up and move every hour.
  • Take a nightly walk.
  • Dance it out in the morning to my favourite tune.

Sleep soundly

  • Read a book before bed. (No tech allowed!)
  • Write a worry list to clear my head.
  • Put on calming music and stretch.

Shift your thinking

  • Write down 3 Good Things each night.
  • Think of a non-scale victory every morning.
  • Call my friends when I’m stressed.

Once you give your new behaviour a try over the week…

● Are you happy, proud, or feeling a positive impact? Great! This is a good behaviour to turn into a habit. Choose a cue that will remind you to practice it consistently.

● Not finding the habit particularly rewarding? Try using temptation bundling to make the behaviour more reinforcing!
